“I love the start of a new year! It’s when I take the time to look at everything in my life and evaluate where I am. I find that this is a great opportunity for me to hit the reset button and start fresh! In Matthew 6, Jesus reminds us of three things: when you Give, when you Pray, and when you Fast. A few years back, Kelly and I began to start off the year by praying, fasting, and giving as a way of saying, “God I dedicate this year to you, and we are believing for great things!” Wow! What a power we tapped into. We have seen God move in truly amazing ways. So this year, I want to invite you to join us in #Reset21, 21 days of Prayer and Fasting. Let’s start the year off right. Let’s hit the RESET BUTTON!!!”
“When this vision came to me, I, Daniel, had been in mourning for three whole weeks. All that time I had eaten no rich food. No meat or wine crossed my lips, and I used no fragrant lotions until those three weeks had passed.” – Daniel 10:2,3
